Diamondbacks | Addison Reed out two weeks

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 07:25:32 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Reed is expected to be the closer, but he has been very shaky in the role with 14 blown saves the last two years. He's a low-end RP2 or high RP3 in mixed leagues.

Diamondbacks | Addison Reed believes problems are mechanical

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 10:25:55 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Addison Reed, who has just two saves in his last five chances, believes he is mechanically out of whack right now. Reed is 20-for-25 on the season and has allowed nine home runs. Reed naturally throws across his body, and he gets into trouble when his weight drifts to the side instead of moving forward towards the plate in his delivery. He is working hard to correct the problem. The D-backs believe Reed can fix his mechanics, and manager Kirk Gibson isn't even considering giving the job to RP Brad Ziegler.

"Sometimes I just get fastball happy and think I can get by with some well-located fastballs," Reed said. "The thing with me is, I've been getting hurt a lot of times leaving the ball up and over the middle of the plate instead of hitting the corners. Obviously I need to start throwing more sliders and start mixing it up a little more, and when I throw the fastball I need to locate where I am supposed to." Reed's fastball is averaging 92.5 mph this year, which is about where he sat last year after being in the 94.5 mph range his first two seasons with the Chicago White Sox. Reed thinks improving his mechanics will lead to fewer homers allowed, too.

Fantasy Tip: Saves speculators should still take a chance on Ziegler just in case Reed continues to struggle. Eventually, if Reed can't turn things around, Gibson will likely be forced to make a move in the ninth.

Diamondbacks | Skipper backs Addison Reed

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 10:54:55 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Addison Reed will remain as the team's closer, according to manager Kirk Gibson.

Fantasy Tip: Deja vu. We heard the same statement from Gibson last week the night after Addison blew a save and was hit with the loss. Since then, Reed has recorded one save in between another blown save and loss, which came last night. Reed is on shaky ground, and saves speculators with room should stash Brad Ziegler.

Diamondbacks | Addison Reed still the closer

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 14:40:50 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Addison Reed is still the team's closer, according to manager Kirk Gibson.

Fantasy Tip: Reed hasn't been great this year, but the fact is that the D-Backs don't have many other options to go to in the ninth. If Gibson were to make a move, Brad Ziegler would likely get the first shot.

Diamondbacks | Want Addison Reed to vary pitch selection

Tue, 10 Jun 2014 07:41:10 -0700

Reed has thrown his changeup less than 1 percent of the time this year compared to 7 percent last year and use of his slider also has dropped, from around 25 percent throughout his career to 20 percent in 2014.
